Friday feature: random

Welcome to my random Friday feature for April!  Enjoy!

Of course I had to include something with buttons.  Wouldn't these be fun to make?  There are so many fun uses for them.

Another button item...A simple button with beautiful bead embroidery in black and white.  How can you not love it?

I always love clouds!  What a creative use for this little piece of sea glass.

This is an example of an awesome set of beads that I haven't bought because I don't know what I'd do with them.  But they're still so much fun.

I have a weakness for chicks and ducks.  These adorable little guys are perfect for Easter.

I'm sure that you already know why I chose this piece.

And I had to include a triangle item!  I actually do know how I'd use these triangles, but cabochons are a whole level of beadweaving that I'm not ready to approach because I don't need another direction to take right now.  But I know that someone out there will make something wonderful with these soon!
